The Conveyancing Information Executive (CIE), a new trade body to raise data quality in property searches, founded by Groundsure, Landmark Legal, SearchFlow and Geodesys, has released a new set of Standards and Code of Practice to maintain and improve the quality of information conveyancing professionals and stakeholders in the home buying and selling process receive. A CIE press release stated: “The purpose of the Conveyancing Information Executive (CIE) is to raise data quality and content standards, in property searches used in the UK conveyancing process. “With the conveyancing industry evolving and the growing role of technology and data, the establishment of the CIE is timed to fill the void that exists around data governance, provenance and transparency. All CIE members recognise the importance of these principles, as they are enshrined within the CIE Standards and Code of Practice.”
Chris Loaring, Managing Director, Landmark Legal and Argyll Environmental said: “Landmark Legal has been at the forefront of the property data industry for over two decades and, with digitisation, AI and open source data set to increase its footprint in the conveyancing industry, we all face new challenges. In particular, there is a need to carefully balance the progression made possible by technological advances with a renewed focus on the underlying data foundation on which they are based. We believe that the Conveyancing Information Executive makes this possible. The CIE aims to provide a rigorous and transparent approach to property search governance standards, with data integrity, accuracy and transparency underpinning values in the overall provision of conveyancing search products, both today and in the future.”
Redbrick solutions works closely with our partners to provide expert support to our clients and the search results are returned directly into the appropriate matter in RPM, as and when they are ready. Automatic notifications are produced to keep you up to date with progress and to notify you when results have been returned. The system will automatically suggest additional searches for you, based on the postcode. For example, a flood, mining or radon search. This is particularly useful if you are acting in an area that is not local or known to you.
